Going Ballistic!

Newton's Laws and the Mathematics of Gravity

3...2...1... Blast Off!

3rd, 4th & 5th Graders and up will love this math-centric program about Rockets, Gravity, Newton's Laws and using math to calculate Altitude.

Pow!Science! makes multiplication & division frustration-free as we launch safe, air-powered rockets hundreds of feet into the air and then do the math to figure out just how high they flew!

Going Ballistic will increase your students' knowledge of physics, acceleration, gravity, units of measurement and even gets them performing simple algebra!

This program is weather dependent, as we must launch the rockets outside. Our safe, air-pressure powered rockets do not involve chemical or combustible propellants of any kind.
